OMG...Gov. Newsom wants to steal gas tax dollars for rail

Did you really think this wasn't going to happen? Is this what you wanted? This is not what you voted for.

Jon Coupal from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association will be speaking with John & Ken today at 5pm.

Our friend Katy Grimes writes: "Through an Executive Order, California Governor Gavin Newsom has redirected gas tax money to fund railway systems and other projects. The gas tax revenue would have repaired and upgraded the state’s broken highways and roads."

So you were lied to...again.

The Sacramento Bee writes : "Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R-Fresno was equally upset.

“The executive order basically says your own personal automobile is the problem and we’re going to force you out of your automobile by spending your gas tax money on things that don’t improve roads, highways, and streets,” Patterson said.

“What the hell were you thinking?” he said of Newsom’s directive. “I don’t normally talk like this, but it’s hard for people who are out of touch in Sacramento to fully understand what it’s like to try to fix Highway 99. The governor doesn’t use 99 like the rest of us do. He has escorts driving him. He’s out of touch with what the people have to deal with in California, and I think it’s going to bite him politically.”
